General News

Second Semester Updated Guidance
We are excited to welcome students back on campus for the second semester next Wednesday, January 19, at 8:00 am.

Both the CDC and IDPH have recently updated the guidelines for isolation after a positive test. If a student has tested positive, they may return to school after five days if they have remained without symptoms or their symptoms are resolving. The priority is to have students back in class as soon as they are well.  To help make this possible; we ask our community to: 

  • Notify our school nurse, Jenn Sezonov, when your student or family is dealing with a positive COVID test, and she will work with you to determine when your student may return to school. 
  • Please continue to keep students home when they feel sick and have symptoms of any kind.    

Please take a few minutes to review our updated health plan on the Wheaton Academy website – https://families.wheatonacademy.org/health/.

We are so grateful to our Wheaton Academy family for your support in helping us reach our end-of-year $100,000 matching gift goal. During the month of December, over 275 faithful partners gave a gift toward our goal. Thank you for your generosity in helping us achieve our mission of nurturing growth in students through relationships, excellence, and service to the glory of God.

Not to us, Lord, not to us but to Your name be the glory. Psalm 115:1
